DDL-CFP-IEEE JSAC Special Issue on Communications and Data Analytics in Smart Grid

June 1

IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications (JSAC) is inviting submissions for a Special Issue on “Communications and Data Analytics in Smart Grid”.


Call for Papers

The electric grid is an ecosystem of asset owners, manufacturers, service providers, and system operators, all working together to run one of the most reliable systems in the world. The Smart Grid represents an unprecedented opportunity to move the electric grid into a new era of reliability, availability, and efficiency that will contribute to our economic and environmental health. The ongoing digitalization, e.g. deployment of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and phasor measurement units (PMUs) as well as intelligent automation systems is drastically increasing the amount, quality, and variety of data that utilities and grid operators are collecting on supply, transmission, distribution, and demand. Sensing, computing, and disseminating these data are essential for the modernization of the grid. As such, communication and data analytics are two fundamental pillars of the Smart Grid.

This special issue solicits original research papers focused on Communications and Data Analytics for

  • Smart Metering, Demand Response and Dynamic Pricing
  • Energy Storage and Electric Vehicles
  • Active Distribution Grids and Microgrids
  • Cyber Security, Privacy, and Resilience for Smart Grids
  • Transactive Energy
  • Energy Internet and Energy System Integration
  • Distribution and Transmission Synchrophasor Networks

Submission Guidelines

All submissions have to be prepared according to the Guide for Authors as published in the Journal website at http://www.comsoc.org/jsac/paper-submission-guidelines and must be submitted via EDAS.
